The New Age of DC Heroes brings seven new books, new heroes and new villains to the DC universe! Coming this January is Sideways, written by Dan DiDio and Justin Jordan, with illustrations by Kenneth Rocafort.
“We wanted to do something with youthful energy and a lot of fun.” said DiDio at DC’s Metal panel. We’ll follow a young kid who falls through a crack in reality and comes out on the other side of Gotham City. He finds he’s gained the ability to open rifts in the world and step through to anywhere. But the more rifts he creates the more damage he causes to the world. “He tries to emulate being a good superhero and it turns out it’s a lot harder than it looks,” Jordan added with a laugh.
Grant Morrison will be involved in several Sideways issues. Some characters Morrison has created will show up. Here’s a hint, they’re seven soldiers.
The entire run will be priced at $2.99, every issue will have the same cover and for the first time ever, three-fold vertically folding covers.
